Garbage Services

Garbage collection at your home or business is provided by different companies depending upon where you live or operate a business in Gwinnett County.

Garbage Collection from Your Home

Residents living in Unincorporated Gwinnett receive weekly collection of garbage and recycling provided by a hauler assigned to your area. Garbage should be contained in a single 95 gallon trash cart. Single-stream recycling is unlimited and residents can use their own container provided that it is clearly marked “Recyclables”. In addition, bulky item and white goods collection is also provided at no additional cost however residents should make arrangements with their hauler 48 hours prior to their collection day.

Large families, or those who choose not to recycle, may generate more trash each week than will fit in the cart. Haulers are not required to collect extra trash beyond the 95-gallon limit, and your hauler can charge you for excess trash. But by calling your hauler, you can get a second 95-gallon cart to handle the excess for an additional fee of $12/month.

Yard waste collection is an elective service and is billed semi-annually (January-June and July-December). This arrangement is between the resident and the hauler and can be arranged by contacting the hauler directly.

Residents living within a City should check with their City Hall for questions about how to begin service or what services are provided.
